The Arthog Bucket

During the late Bronze Age, metalworkers mastered the art of making buckets and cauldrons from hammered sheets of bronze, fastened together with rivets. The Arthog Bucket is one of the earliest known in Britain. It was made in south-eastern Europe and brought to Wales, before being buried in marshy ground in the Mawddach Estuary, probably during a ritual ceremony to the Gods.
